AIRO

Cisco/Aironet 34X/35X/4500/4800 ISA and PCI cards

This is the standard Linux driver to support Cisco/Aironet ISA and
PCI 802.11 wireless cards.
It supports the new 802.11b cards from Cisco (Cisco 34X, Cisco 35X
- with or without encryption) as well as card before the Cisco
acquisition (Aironet 4500, Aironet 4800, Aironet 4800B).

This driver support both the standard Linux Wireless Extensions
and Cisco proprietary API, so both the Linux Wireless Tools and the
Cisco Linux utilities can be used to configure the card.

The driver can be compiled as a module and will be named "airo".

ATMEL

Atmel at76c50x chipset 802.11b support

A driver 802.11b wireless cards based on the Atmel fast-vnet
chips. This driver supports standard Linux wireless extensions.

Many  cards based on this chipset do not have flash memory
and need their firmware loaded at start-up. If yours is
one of these, you will need to provide a firmware image
to be loaded into the card by the driver. The Atmel
firmware package can be downloaded from
<http://www.thekelleys.org.uk/atmel>

PCI_ATMEL

Atmel at76c506 PCI cards

Enable support for PCI and mini-PCI cards containing the
Atmel at76c506 chip.

PCMCIA_ATMEL

Atmel at76c502/at76c504 PCMCIA cards

Enable support for PCMCIA cards containing the
Atmel at76c502 and at76c504 chips.

AT76C50X_USB

Atmel at76c503/at76c505/at76c505a USB cards

Enable support for USB Wireless devices using Atmel at76c503,
at76c505 or at76c505a chips.

AIRO_CS

Cisco/Aironet 34X/35X/4500/4800 PCMCIA cards

This is the standard Linux driver to support Cisco/Aironet PCMCIA
802.11 wireless cards.  This driver is the same as the Aironet
driver part of the Linux Pcmcia package.
It supports the new 802.11b cards from Cisco (Cisco 34X, Cisco 35X
- with or without encryption) as well as card before the Cisco
acquisition (Aironet 4500, Aironet 4800, Aironet 4800B). It also
supports OEM of Cisco such as the DELL TrueMobile 4800 and Xircom
802.11b cards.

This driver support both the standard Linux Wireless Extensions
and Cisco proprietary API, so both the Linux Wireless Tools and the
Cisco Linux utilities can be used to configure the card.

PCMCIA_WL3501

Planet WL3501 PCMCIA cards

A driver for WL3501 PCMCIA 802.11 wireless cards made by Planet.
It has basic support for Linux wireless extensions and initial
micro support for ethtool.

PRISM54

'Intersil Prism GT/Duette/Indigo PCI/Cardbus (DEPRECATED)'

This enables support for FullMAC PCI/Cardbus prism54 devices. This
driver is now deprecated in favor for the SoftMAC driver, p54pci.
p54pci supports FullMAC PCI/Cardbus devices as well. For details on
the scheduled removal of this driver on the kernel see the feature
removal schedule:

Documentation/feature-removal-schedule.txt

For more information refer to the p54 wiki:

http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/p54

Note: You need a motherboard with DMA support to use any of these cards

When built as module you get the module prism54

USB_ZD1201

USB ZD1201 based Wireless device support

Say Y if you want to use wireless LAN adapters based on the ZyDAS
ZD1201 chip.

This driver makes the adapter appear as a normal Ethernet interface,
typically on wlan0.

The zd1201 device requires external firmware to be loaded.
This can be found at http://linux-lc100020.sourceforge.net/

To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the
module will be called zd1201.

USB_NET_RNDIS_WLAN

Wireless RNDIS USB support

This is a driver for wireless RNDIS devices.
These are USB based adapters found in devices such as:

Buffalo WLI-U2-KG125S
U.S. Robotics USR5421
Belkin F5D7051
Linksys WUSB54GSv2
Linksys WUSB54GSC
Asus WL169gE
Eminent EM4045
BT Voyager 1055
Linksys WUSB54GSv1
U.S. Robotics USR5420
BUFFALO WLI-USB-G54

All of these devices are based on Broadcom 4320 chip which is the
only wireless RNDIS chip known to date.

If you choose to build a module, it'll be called rndis_wlan.

drivers/net/wireless/rtl818x/Kconfig

ADM8211

ADMtek ADM8211 support

This driver is for ADM8211A, ADM8211B, and ADM8211C based cards.
These are PCI/mini-PCI/Cardbus 802.11b chips found in cards such as:

Xterasys Cardbus XN-2411b
Blitz NetWave Point PC
TrendNet 221pc
Belkin F5D6001
SMC 2635W
Linksys WPC11 v1
Fiberline FL-WL-200X
3com Office Connect (3CRSHPW796)
Corega WLPCIB-11
SMC 2602W V2 EU
D-Link DWL-520 Revision C

However, some of these cards have been replaced with other chips
like the RTL8180L (Xterasys Cardbus XN-2411b, Belkin F5D6001) or
the Ralink RT2400 (SMC2635W) without a model number change.

Thanks to Infineon-ADMtek for their support of this driver.

MAC80211_HWSIM

Simulated radio testing tool for mac80211

This driver is a developer testing tool that can be used to test
IEEE 802.11 networking stack (mac80211) functionality. This is not
needed for normal wireless LAN usage and is only for testing. See
Documentation/networking/mac80211_hwsim for more information on how
to use this tool.

To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be
called mac80211_hwsim.  If unsure, say N.
